MG Motor UK is celebrating an exceptional start to the year, delivering record-breaking sales volume in January. The iconic British brand sold a record 1,846 cars in January, securing its highest ever monthly market share at 1.24%. Maintaining its position as the UK’s fastest-growing car manufacturer, MG has started 2020 by building on the momentum it’s developed over the past few years.
Boasting its 27th consecutive month of sales and share growth, MG’s exceptional performance continues to be fronted by the all-electric ZS EV SUV, which continues to outperform the manufacturer’s ambitious objectives. The UK’s first truly affordable, family-friendly electric car, ZS EV has been a key player in bringing zero-emissions motoring to drivers across the UK, allowing a broader audience the chance to help the environment and save money on their fuel bills. Despite the car’s outstanding popularity, ZS EV is now available in good supply for immediate delivery, with prices starting from just £22,495.
Daniel Gregorious, Head of Sales & Marketing at MG Motor UK, said: “Following an exceptional 2019, we’re delighted to have started 2020 with such significant growth. Our Momentum & Growth mid-term plan continues to guide out business towards our goal of 30,000 sales this year. With more new dealerships set to open over the coming weeks, we’re bringing our brand even closer to UK consumers all the time. With a high-quality range of affordable cars, including our fully electric ZS EV SUV, we really do have something for everyone!”
The brand has also enjoyed strong sales of its dynamic MG3 hatchback and desirable MG ZS compact SUV, with customers benefiting from both car’s high-quality, spacious interiors and generous standard specification. MG’s increasing popularity has also been boosted by the launch of two all-new model variants last month.
Introduced in response to customer feedback and demand, the sporty and highly customisable MG3 Exclusive Nav brings in-built iGo satellite navigation to MG’s smallest model for the first time. Priced from just £12,995, the MG3 Exclusive Nav includes advanced features such as Apple Car Play, DAB radio, reversing camera, cruise control and sports seats. Attractive PCP finance offers are also available
Standing out from the crowd, the stylish MG ZS Limited Edition is now also available with the marque’s smooth-changing six-speed automatic gearbox paired with MG’s popular turbocharged petrol engine. Available from just £16,995, customers looking to pick up the Limited Edition Automatic can enjoy the exclusive combination of Arctic White paint, high gloss black grille and red trim highlights both front and back. Inside MG ZS Limited Edition, buyers can truly express their bright personality with red seat bolstering, red feature seat stripes and red stitching on the steering wheel, gear lever gaiter and door cards.
